Why the Wood Hacker? Because all the good names were taken! Then again,,, Why not? The end result is always a carving or sculpture but each piece starts with more hacking than sculpting when one is working with stumps, sticks and logs...
My carvings are made primarily with chainsaw while small details, like eyes and scales are often carved using traditional hand tools like gouges, knives, chisels and such. Some of my favorite subjects are wizards, dragons, bears, eagles, trolls, etc...
